What Does the Future Hold for the Italian American Studies Association?

May 21, 2020 127

Join the Italian American Studies Association on Friday May 22, 2020, at 4pm EST for a Zoom Q&A regarding the Lucca Symposium, Pittsburgh Conference, and the new IASA journal published by the University of Illinois Press. Please email Courtney Ruffner at webmaster@italianamericanstudies.net to receive the Zoom link.

The participants will provide updates and answer questions. The first half of the event (roughly thirty to forty minutes) will feature our participants addressing the three topics and answering some pre-prepared questions. In the second half, (approximately fifteen to twenty minutes), attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. We ask that all attendees mute themselves upon entering the meeting and submit their questions in the chat feature of Zoom.

The moderator for this session will direct the questions from the chat to specific respondents.
